Cannot believe there are only 2 weeks left before Christmas! Plans to get all my shopping done this weekend, no matter what!

I would have preferred boring, old white, but the choice was green or orange.

I have a feeling you will love it, no matter what the color! Did you get a glove too?

this lime-like color is very hot right now. i really like it, and i'm thinking it will grow on you too, taxy. careful of you hands when using this hot number. i'd love to have a mandolin myself, but i'm just too accident-prone....

Thanks for the warning. It does have a food pusher thingee. I already bought a cut resistant glove and I have been using it. I bet that glove will be useful with a grater too.

I don't really care what colour is hot now. I intend to keep it for years. Remember avocado kitchen appliances? They were "hot" once too.

Already bought the glove at a local store where I could try it on. The package said 7-7.5 was small. I where a 7.5 in gloves and the extra small is plenty big on my hand.

I can hardly wait for it to get here. It's supposed to arrive on Monday.

shoor do remember those avocado appliances! i loved avocado refrigerators and ranges when when they were hot, loved 'em when they were not. love the color to this day. it has always seemed so perfectly "right" for all metal things in kitchens. i lived with some of the old pieces, fully contented, right up until the turn of the century. i wish i had an avocado stove today. what did get old and dated for me real quick were all of the pastel colored bathroom fixtures. oh okay then, exception made for the blue.
taxy, you get tired of any of your orange and lime green kitchen gadgets, you know where to unload them....

The brown appliances (copper tone) were a horrible color. If that is copper tone, then someone let the copper get tarnished real bad. My favorite was the Harvest Gold. I had a washer/dryer in that color. Those were the only appliances in color I ever bought. I always bought white. And today I am glad. It just goes with everything. Even my KA is white. My daughter did buy me a black coffee maker and micro though.
